This park is beautiful and offers a wide variety of trails - but this app only captures one loop of the Mountain Bike (Green P) trail. Orange blazed (H - Hiking/Running) offers a single file trail with plenty of diversity - hills, roots, swtich backs, unfortunately this part of the park is not shown on the app. Grab a trail map at the Miller Landing trail head and you'll have a great time!

Had to do the extra loop to time the sunset at the observation tower. Worth it!

Beautiful winding trail through the woods. I cleared the spider webs for you! Came upon spots where I was surround by flowers. There were a lot of roots yes, but the trail was nice and dry. People have strapped bike helmets on some trees. I like this trail. I’m from MD so we’re used to scanning the ground for rocks; the roots weren’t a big deal. It was Saturday and you could here the cheers from a youth baseball league.

I personally feel this pro has the best trail system in Tallahassee! The different trails offer different experiences. There is a nice sort of greenway at the heart of the park too. It’s never been crowded anytime I’ve been.

Two good loops - east and west. They offer different experiences. West offers a lake view, east is more wooded. Both are well marked and mildly challenging.

Nice open trails with a lot to choose from. The West Loop is nice with a view of Lake Jackson. The East Loop is more in the woods. Easy to moderate trails. Good diversity.

Not a bad walk. I think I was the first one there since I got all the spider webs. A lot of roots so watch your step.

We ended up walking a little over 6 miles because we got a little lost. Definitely plan to return again.

We love taking our dog to this park and we hike here often. I would not rate any of the trails as moderate, however.

Trail was quiet and easy to follow, with nice scenery. Was pleasantly surprised! Wasn’t quite sure where to park based on directions from All Trails, so picked up a map at the gate entrance which was incredibly helpful. Parked on the side of the road down past the equestrian field and entered the trail from there. Map was helpful on hike as well.

Diverse topography. Lots of roots. Tight and curvey. Some inclined and steeper areas, but mostly moderate elevations throughout. Overall, fun, but tougher trail.

Well-marked trail through a beautiful patch of deciduous slope forest neighboring Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park. Easy, but tracks across as much elevation change as North Florida can offer to keep it interesting. Several different loops maintained by the Florida Trail Association comprise this trail. I completed the roughly 2-mi. Coonbottom Loop on this trip but hope to return for a longer visit soon.

I run this trail all the time it does have a lot of roots and rolling hills similar to mobiles but it is one of my favorite trails

Great trails today ... Well marked easy access in and out. Overall I would call it easy but there wild some good elevation changes; will definitely do it again in, may bring the bike next time.

What a great trail, or rather group of trails. Phipps has a number of trails which interconnect. As long as you pay attention when you come to an intersection you should be fine though. I highly recommend the coon bottom loop for a nice hike to burn a couple hours (and calories). There are also mountain bike trails for those who like to ride.

Nicely done trails. Well blazed. These are numerous multipurpose trails that share and intersect with horse, bike and hiking. Maps reflect this and can be pretty confusing. It's easy to get a little lost because of so many choices. Not a lot of wildlife but I suspect this is because of all the activity from us Humans.

Beautiful. It's pretty surreal that you are in Tallahassee but feel so disconnected with the city at the same time. Only complaint (but it's a big one) I had is that they were cutting down trees around 50 feet from a part of the trail. Kind of a buzzkill when you get out there to get away from all that crud..

You quickly become submerged in the beauty of these trails. it doesn't take long to leave behind the the noise of children playing on the ball field. It easy to forget that you are in Tallahassee while on the trails. Pleasantly surprised.

There are a LOT of roots, but towards the end it's an enjoyable ride. I'll need better suspension before I try again though.

I wasn't that impressed. It had so many tree roots that I don't get the enjoyment of riding this one unless it is just the challenge of staying up, moving fast. Distracts from the scenery. Wouldn't even desire to walk this one. I got through it just fine however wasn't impressed.

Beautiful scenery with ups and downs as well. Tics aren't that much fun though.

We added about .75 mile to this trail in March bringing it up to around 4.25 miles. We have plans to add another 2 miles to it and are working on a new section right now.
